Author Notes

Although I generally always mess with a recipe, even the first time I use it, this muffin recipe is incredibly simple and flexible. I have included almost exactly the ingredients and proportions as in the original, and over time I have played with the berries, the spices, the nuts, the sour and the flour.

Got a gluten and nut allergy? Swap out the nut flour and nuts for a gluten-free flour and some other grain.

Got lactose intolerance? Swap our the sour for a yogurt substitute.

What You'll Need
  • 4 eggs
  • 0.5 cups sour cream or buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 cups almond flour (or 2:1 with coconut flour)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon and/or allspice
  • 2.5 teaspoons baking powder
  • 0.5 cups sweetener (Swerve granular)
  • 0.5-1 cups chopped nuts (pecans and/or walnuts, cashews)
  • 1-1.5 cups berries (blueberries and/or cranberries)
  1. Preheat the oven to 325F and prepare muffin tins with paper liners (makes 12).
  2. Put eggs, sour cream and vanilla in a blender. Pulse to mix well.
  3. Add, in portions, the dry ingredients, with intermittent blending until all are added and mixed.
  4. By hand, blend in the nuts and berries. Scoop into muffin tins. Bake 20-25 minutes.
  5. Remove muffins to rack immediately to avoid condensation in the tin.
